I’ve worked with Sheri regarding student social/emotional issues and student behavior on several occasions. Sheri talks with you, not to you. She is super positive and it emulates through her communication style. She shares her knowledge and expertise in a variety of creative ways. It’s truly amazing how she can break things down and get to the heart of the matter, while also helping you overcome obstacles. Sheri’s the real deal. She doesn’t just “talk the talk,” she walks the walk!

“Every time I talk to Sheri, I feel better within the first 3 minutes. She truly has a way of calming me and this helps me shift my perspective into something that serves me much better! I never feel judged and I always feel supported in a much different way than family, friends and colleagues. It’s like the “missing piece” that enables me to understand what I need and rise to the challenge of getting it.”
